The Astonished Heart – Dublin Theatre Gay Festival
Gay playwright Noel Coward when asked why he didn’t ‘come out’ replied: ‘I didn’t want to offend other people’s prejudices’.
Noel wrote sexually ambiguous plays. ‘The Astonished Heart’ stars a tormented psychiatrist, his wife, her friend in a toxic love affair that splinters their very existence. A raw and emotional journey through the landscape of repressed love and shattered illusions. Behind the Moon Productions reveals the now eighty year old play, reclaiming Coward’s queer sensibilities in a stripped down, visually engaging and theatrically inventive presentation.
Contains scenes of a sexual nature.
Written by Noel Coward | Directed by Geoff O’Keeffe
